Just hours ago it has been officially confirmed.. ..That Dallas McCarver has passed away. I honestly felt like he was the future of bodybuilding. It wasn’t really till the next day.. ..That I went into the gym, and.. That it hit home. That he was not gonna return. He was and would have become the Mr. Olympia. I really truly believe that. When you get put into scenarios where your back is against the wall. You have two options.. You can either quit, Or you can find something deep down inside of you to keep on going. I would be training and I just hear him say.. ”C’mon champ!” And I would be like.. OK. This is for Dallas. There’s been a lot of adversity in my prep.. I wanna dedicate this win to Dallas McCarver. I love you my brother. The number one thing is intensity. There’s no replacement for HARD WORK. And once you have established what your threshold of pain is.. What your hard work is.. I think that’s when all of this extra really comes into play.
